Would Yuffie from Final Fantasy VII count? I've noticed some things about her that I think could land her here, such as her skimpy, midriff revealing outfits and some of her poses. I just want your opinion on this.

Given the redefinition that was discussed in the repair shop, methinks you'd have to demonstrate that she offers the most fanservice out of all characters.

I read it. since when did the subject of fanservice become so controversial?? Geez! It's starting to become as bad as all that Complete Monster crap that people keep brining up! But you gotta admit; she actually is rather hot

Well, why would I consider her hot? I haven't played the game.

Also, the reason fanservice tropes attract so much controversy is because of people shoehorning poor examples in.

Google some pics of her and see for yourself

I only see a fighter woman. Nothing hot about her. It may qualify as Ms. Fanservice but that is not sufficient evidence.

I don't think Yuffie applies when Tifa "Hot pants, a midriff-bearing tanktop, and suspenders are the best combat gear. By the way my boobs are massive" Lockhart exists.

EDIT: Sorry, my bad. It's a miniskirt. That's about the length of hot pants.

Just be careful there. I just wanted to know about if Yuffie would fit, not start a flame war between Yuffie fans and Tifa fans. Not that that's happened so far, but... you know. Anyway, Even if she doesn't quite belong, she's still obviously Hotter and Sexier in Dirge of Cerberus. Maybe not quite to the point of Fanservice, but...

Do we need to re-work the description for Ms. Fanservice?

Not so much "re-work" than "clarify". And for courtesy's sake, a link to the forum discussion that started this.

Regarding the example of Highschool of the Dead that you put forth... I personally think each of the protagonist group's girls qualifies as a Ms. Fanservice, with the caveat that Shizuka (the teacher) is more or less an Exaggerated Trope version of Ms. Fanservice when compared to the rest.

That's honestly a good way to put it. I do think we need to clarify more than re-work.

I think the general skin-showing guidelines can be kept, so what can we rework it into?

"Please note that there is no requirement to actually be single to fit into this trope. Many of these characters are married." Isn't part of the whole point of the "Ms." honorific that it's neutral to marital status?

It's more of a preference thing these days than anything.

Seems like people are using this mostly for "I think this character is hot," really. (although at least on the video games page some of the examples are definitely *meant* to be fanservice. *ahem* Miranda. I don't know about other pages.)

Well, I can't speak for all the examples, though it does seem like a few examples go a bit too far, like the writer was getting turned on just thinking about it. Still, if there's specific examples you think aren't MEANT to be "Ms. Fanservice" by the creators of the work, delete it, and PUT IN A REASON. If there's a dispute, someone can re-add it and explain why it should be there. If a Edit War ensues, take it to the repair shop.

Am I the only one who thinks that we need a {{Ms. Fan Disservice}} Trope?

I believe we have such a trope in the form of Gonk.

A note on the page quote: Servalan's trademark dress doesn't feature Absolute Cleavage; it's split from the crotch to the ankles, not from the neckline down. See here.
